The Price of Privacy: The Unprecedented Use of Personal Data in the 21st Century
The James Jacobs Civic Engagement Project presents Shoshana Zuboff
As we attempt to grasp the consequences of our digital era, SHOSHANA ZUBOFF’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is “an epoch-defining international bestseller” (Guardian) that “shines a searing light on how this latest revolution is transforming our economy, politics, society—and lives” (Financial Times). In talks drawing from her landmark book—named one of TIME’s 100 Must-Read Books of 2019, and one of The New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2019—she outlines the cost of putting a price on private data, and urges leaders to pay attention, resist habituation, and come up with novel responses to a new era.
